Tit for Tat Club.INDIANAPOLIS (AP) ó An Indiana woman who ran unsuccessfully for U.S. Congress last year was being held Saturday on charges she made threats against judges and other officials on her Facebook account.
Morgan County Prosecutor Steve Sonnega ó who said he was among those targeted ó said he decided to move quickly after discovering the threats in part due to last week's shootings in Arizona that wounded U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed six others.
"I think the Arizona situation drove more to the sense of urgency," Sonnega told The Associated Press.
Cheryl Allen, 51, of Martinsville was being held on $100,000 bond Saturday in a jail in her hometown, about 28 miles south of Indianapolis. State police arrested her on eight felony counts of intimidation on Thursday, the same day authorities discovered the postings, which were apparently published on her page three days earlier.
Just as I said in thread other day about the shooting victim in Arizona being arrested for death threats that we would be now entering the Tit for Tat club. And here you go.
I know some were having a circle jerk reaction to that thread yesterday and now they can perhaps participate in this one as those celebrations always need a pivot guy. Looks like the chickens have came back to roost on your porch now. But tomorrow is a different day and am certain we will see another tit for tat.
